"Detective Grimoire is a better detective game than the likes of, say, L.A. Noire [...] The designers knew what they wanted the game to be and ensure that nothing got in the way of it. As a result, it’s thoroughly enjoyable" - Chris Priestman, Indie Statik

"Definitely one of the better crime games I've played and it's a treat to experience" - Mark Brown, Pocket Gamer

"From the moment you set foot on the docks, Boggy’s Bog is engrossing, its characters alive and endearing" - Jillian Werner, GameZebo

"You'll love the time you spend with this beautifully styled and charisma-packed adventure" - Dora, JayIsGames

"The simple, flat art style and full voice narration go a long way towards lending the game a spooky atmosphere. It looks a lot like Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends as a murder mystery." - Jeremiah Rice, Android Police

"In all honesty, the flashy animations and interesting art style sold the game entirely for me, and as a whole, the game is perfect for those who want to get their detective hats on. Missing Detective Grimoire would be a crime in itself." - Lucy Ingram, 148Apps

This game is my childhood. It was a little browser game originally and I ended up replaying it a thousand times. Glad to see it's still alive. Can't wait for it to come out! Also, good to see the no-hat thing is going to make a comeback.

this game started out as a creepy flashgame where you investigate a murder at a fair

The first Detective Grimoire was one of the best actual detective games I've ever played (unlike the "find these 10 items hidden in plain sight" so called "detective games"). When I heard they were making a sequel, I wanted to know more about it, see if it was going to be just like the previous one, and so on. What I found out was that they had a kickstarter which already had made quite some progress, but it seemed that the game was late and people wanted a refund. I thought to myself that it would still take a while for them to release it, but here we are in steam greenlight. Really loved the demo; the gameplay, the graphics, etc. If this gets added, I'll be sure to buy it.
